Flowers Galore: Bouquets, Boutonnieres, Centerpieces, & More
Some say the flowers set the mood of a wedding. Go overboard to create a floral wonderland, keep it simple and understated, or find a middle ground to suit you. Choose your favorites and fillers to complement those choices. Flowers are a great way to decorate your ceremony and reception spaces and make wonderful centerpieces for your cocktail and reception tables. If you’re trying to stay within a budget, try ordering flowers that are in-season to keep the total price down and bulk up with greenery. If you absolutely have to have a particular type, talk to your florist to see how they can fit both vision and budget.
More than flowers, you may find yourself needing additional décor, chairs, tableware, tents, and more. Rentals can help you jazz up your ceremony and/or reception venue to fully portray the atmosphere and theme you’re looking for for your wedding. Some businesses offer the basics or just one aspect of décor necessary to pull your look together, while others rent out all the furniture you need to stage a scene for photos or to provide smaller seating areas for your guests during the cocktail hour and reception. It’s very important to begin creating a list of what items and styles you’re looking for and how you want it arranged so when you contact a rental company you’ll know exactly what to ask for to determine the rental expenses to add to your budget. You can also talk to your wedding coordinator and caterer to see what they have available or for further recommendations.
